ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays, in partnership with a global real estate investment and development firm, have submitted a bid to redevelop Tropicana Field and surrounding land on the edge of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. The club said Friday that in addition to a new ballpark, the ambitious plan for the Historic Gas Plant District would include more than 5,700 multi-family units, 1.4 million square feet of office, 300,000 square feet of retail, 700 hotel rooms, 600 senior living residences and a 2,500-person  entertainment venue. The Rays have been pursuing a new home to replace Tropicana Field for more than a decade. The club has played there since its inception in 1998.
